Heater tried re-lightening 3 times but didn't stay lit, what can be wrong, I hav no hot water, heat or gas


Sounds like you need a new ignitor
They do burn out every so often and without them there will be no heat or gas flow as this controls when the gas kicks on.

I have my Mom's 193909WB coffeemaker, It runs like a top! How do I clean it?


Here are the cleaning instructions directly from West Bend's instruction manual. Good luck!



Cleaning Instructions
1. Unplug coffeemaker and allow to cool before cleaning.
2. Clean basket, stem and cover in hot soapy water with a dishcloth, rinse and dry. Coffee stains on underside of cover or stem may be removed by scouring with a damp cloth and a non-abrasive cleanser.
3. Clean inside of coffeemaker by filling with hot water until about one-third full. Add small amount of liquid dishwasher detergent and wash with a dishcloth or sponge. Then clean the heating unit well (where stem fits) with a scouring pad, to remove coffee residue. Twist pad inside heating unit well to clean thoroughly. IMPORTANT: If heating unit well is not kept clean, coffeemaker will not perform properly.
4. After cleaning inside of coffeemaker, drain and rinse inside. Clean faucet by letting clear water run through it into sink, while moving faucet handle up and down. Drain water from inside of coffeemaker and dry.
5. Clean outside of coffeemaker with a damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use abrasive metal scouring pads or cleansers on outside of coffeemaker as scratching will occur.

DO NOT WASH COFFEEMAKER PARTS IN AN AUTOMATIC DISHWASHER.

Special Cleaning Instructions
To Remove Mineral Deposits: If coffeemaker is used daily, a special cleaning every 2 weeks OR every week if used for heating water, is necessary. Fill coffeemaker with 1 quart each of water and white distilled vinegar. (If a white mineral buildup has formed on inside of coffeemaker, use an additional 2 cups of vinegar.) Place stem and empty coffee basket in place, secure cover onto coffeemaker and plug in. Allow coffeemaker to complete perking cycle, then let stand for 10 to 15 minutes. Unplug and drain coffeemaker. Allow to cool and follow general cleaning instructions.
To Remove Discoloration: Inside of the coffeemaker can discolor when used for heating water, which is normal. To remove/lighten discoloration, fill coffeemaker with water to the level of discoloration (at least to the 12 cup level, but not past maximum cup level). Place stem and empty basket in place. For every 12 cups of water added to coffeemaker, add 2 teaspoons cream of tartar to basket. Secure cover onto coffeemaker, plug cord into coffemaker and then into outlet and allow coffeemaker to complete perk cycle. Let stand for 15 to 20 minutes or until discoloration is lightened. Unplug cord and drain coffeemaker. Allow to cool and follow general cleaning instructions.
Do not use baking soda to clean coffeemaker, as it will discolor inside metal.
After frequent use, coffee residue may collect inside faucet. To clean, unscrew top half of faucet. Move a small brush up and down through faucet. Insert brush through opening inside coffeemaker to clean faucet connection. Rinse and replace top half of faucet.

Won't spin out. Has an LE error message


This a common problem for all front loaders. Your washer will not drain or work 'cause your outlet filter is clogged or an unusually heavy load. The small door is on the left side front bottom of your washer. Remove the door with a putty knife or thin butter knife inserted in the middle top of the access panel door. Drain the water from the filter housing by pulling the tube out of the clip and unplugging, allow it to run into a bucket while the machine is in spin only mode. This mode is acheived when the washer is first powered on press the spin button until no spin is reached then run. Run in this mode until no water is draining from the tube in the bucket. Keep the tube as low as possible. When water has stopped coming out of the tube turn off the washer and unplug from the wall. This step is important because this resets the fault. Expect some water to come out when you open the filter housing by turning counterclockwise until you can pull the filter from its housing. Clean out your filter, return to housing turning clockwise until seated and recap the tube and place in the holder, refit the cover and plug back into the wall. Fixed. You may also need to lighten the load a bit but I always try full on load anyways. If it fails again just lighten, unplug wait >1 minute then replug and run.

GE Dishwasher Hot Start


Here's the current situation, as established in the two months since a new GE dishwasher was installed:
  1. Tow separate service calls established the the machine is supposedly working perfectly, but does not was dishes effectively.
  2. The not water heater now heats water to the highest safe level to avoid scalding people in sinks, bathtub or shower.
  3. The spec sheet for the unit says "HotStart option - Provides optimal water temperature for dependable performance".
  4. This is obviously a lie and a fraud of the public.
  5. It appears GE decided to remove or reduce water heating to lighten its energy consumption, but it does not do so when it requires adding 20 degrees to 30 gallons in a water heater 168 hours a week instead of 4.25 gallons per load on a machine used only a few hours per week.
  6. The fix should be easy...all GE has to do is to reset the HotStart temperature so it heats water enough to dissolve the detergent and clean the dishes.
As it is, the dishwasher is only a way of drying dishes completely washed in the sink. I would not suggest buying this dishwasher.

Buttons do not work


Hello;
We had the same problem. It appears that the water has to heat up before th washer will cycle. It takes about five to ten minutes and then it should work. If not- ask again.
Thanks
